"Please pack up your knives..."

Word on the street is that Bravo's Top Chef Season 7 has begun filming in our very own district...

Earlier this week, Politico posted "'Top Chef' Films First D.C. Challenge," revealing that the first episode had been filmed in Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium off of Constitution Avenue.

In such a political town, it's important that the tasters represent the city, right?

According to Politico, Luke Russert, David Chalian, and Karen Finney were among those invited to sample the tasty dishes. Even Karl Frisch, a familiar face of Professor Green's Politics & Internet Class (SMPA 194), was at the event.

As Metrocurean has pointed out, D.C. has already had its fame on the show with famous contestants such as Carla Hall of Alchemy Caterers and Spike Mendelsohn, of the aforementioned Good Stuff Eatery.

Keep your eyes out for sighting of Top Chef Head Judge Tom Colicchio and Top Chef Host Padma Lakshmi in the area!
